Paul Walker, who perished alongside his friend Roger Rodas on November 30, when the car they were travelling in lost control, named his 15-year-old child, Meadow Rain Walker, as the sole beneficiary of his entire estate, which is valued at an estimated $25 million. The Fast & Furious star’s final will and testament calls for his father to serve as executor of the estate and for his mother to serve as guardian of the actor’s 15-year-old daughter.
The will was prepared and signed in 2001, the same year Walker starred in the first Fast & Furious film that launched the successful film franchise and will continue generating millions for the actor’s estate.
Much of the actor’s wealth came from unspecified personal property, which is currently worth $8 million, and a home worth an estimated $10 million, reported CBS News.
Records show Walker’s estate is expected to earn another $8 million, some of which is likely related to the seventh Fast & Furious film scheduled to be released in April 2015. Shooting of the film was halfway complete when Walker died. Universal Pictures has said Walker will remain in the film but hasn’t laid out how it will execute the footage that has already been shot.
